I gotta agree with that. The course won this weekend. Just setup brutal on an already tough course.

This years was only about 200 yards less than last year with a ridiculious 149 slope rating. That doesn't even factor in all the blind shots, brutal rough, close OBs, and narrow fairways. Today's pro golfer just doesn't have the ball moving ability the old guys had, IMO. Some do, but most don't. The ball and equipment are just different.

Many, many people said the pro's would destroy this course. They weren't in the tourney though.
